In his book, Things Which Become Sound Doctrine, J. Dwight Pentecost presents fourteen key biblical doctrines and explains them in practical, everyday terms that make understanding doctrine easy. With each key doctrine the author collects all the passages throughout the Bible and develops that teaching with depth, accuracy and detailed attention. He provides a clear and researched teaching on each of the given doctrinal terms and he uses very practical illustrations to help the reader. Many Christian’s fall short of God’s standard in their daily life because they have not been taught the basic principles of the Word of God. Believers must be engaged in the transforming and renewing of their mind and begin to discover the principles of the Word of God in order that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine. This book is a great place to start renewing your mind and it is edifying to the soul.
This was one of the first books my pastor gave to me, and since then I have given it to other young believers. This book takes a number of hefty theological terms, which are the bedrock of the Christian faith but are sometimes hard for the young believer to grasp, and breaks them down in a way that young believers can handle. This is a firm foundation for a new or young believer and a great discipleship tool.
